Pay my fine for 'ripper' skids at school grounds: student

The student will have to pay his school $860 after he did
The student will have to pay his school $860 after he did "ripper skids" on the oval.

A TOOWOOMBA schoolboy has taken crowdfunding to the extreme, asking the public to help pay for a fine he incurred for doing "skids" at his school grounds.

The student, who set up the page, wrote a few weeks ago he "was with the boys" just having a "pearler of a day".

"We decided to go to my current high school and see what fun we could get up to, as we finished in the next coming weeks," he said.

"We were on the oval and I pulled a few 'ripper skids'.

"The next day the b******s at the school billed me $860."

The student said he personally thought that was a "fair amount of cash" for a bit of grass. 

"If anything, it was a ripper of a skid," he said.

The student wrote as high school student who spent his money on "ciggies and mods for my Nav" he didn't and would never have that amount of money.

"Please help a brother out. Help spread the word."

He's already received a number of donations, reaching $189 on his way to the goal of $800.

Liam Briggs donated $15, writing "I got no idea who you are but I'm willing to starve myself tomorrow because you ripped a mad skid for the boys, yeah mad fella (sic)."

Another wrote: "Enjoy your last few days in the gulag".

Will you help pay for Cal Walters' fine?
